“If you work hard enough at something, it begins to make itself part of you, even though you do not really like it and know that part isn't real.”
Qiu Xiaolong, Death of a Red Heroine

“The wind languished. The floral curtain ceased flapping. The moonlight streamed through, lighting up her face. It was a young, animated face. At that moment, it touched a string, a peg, deep inside him.”
Qiu Xiaolong

“Tripes, poumons, coeur de porc, etc., tout cela cuit à la vapeur avec du vin de riz.”
Qiu Xiaolong, The Mao Case
